Poetry, Pastries, & Pies Podcast: Special Effects from Cake Affect with Angela Simpson

I had the pleasure of talking to Angela Simpson, a phenomenal woman who wears many hats as General Manager, baker, and along with her husband Ryan, owner of a warm and inviting bakery, called Cake Affect, located in North Carolina. It was such a delight to sit down with Angela and talk about turning their passion for baking into a viable business dedicated to both her mother and Ryan’s mother.

Cake Affect is dedicated to using the finest ingredients to make their mouthwatering pies, cakes, and other sweet treats irresistibly delicious. I love their tagline “We donโ€™t do it all but we put our all in what we do!” To find out more about the products and services Cake Affect offers, check out their website, http://www.cakeaffect.com. So, without further adieu, thank you for joining me on this decadent episode of Poetry, Pastries, & Pies – The Triple P Connection.

If your tongue doesnโ€™t know what to expect

and your taste buds feel a bit of neglect

hit them with the magic of a special effect

when they dance with sweet treats from Cake Affect.
